Venture to Bali and enjoy a fully balanced week of daily yoga and meditation, along with times for self-care and cultural experiences which connect you to the elements:
EARTH: enjoy a tour of a gourmet organic garden during a private cooking class with a head chef
WATER: you’ll take a ride in a traditional jukung boat along the eastern coast to a secluded beach with luxury lunch
FIRE: partake in a traditional fire ceremony led by a Balinese priest before a delicious tasting meal
AIR: breathe deep in the misty morning air as you take a guided walk through the picturesque rice paddy fields
ETHER: end the week with a special spa ritual dedicated to the full relaxation of your mind and body, as well as a traditional Balinese ‘melekut’ blessing.
Your time in Bali will be split between two locations so guests can experience the best of what this lovely land has to offer!
You will start at a seaside town away from the hustle and bustle and really settle in to this week by the ocean! You'll spend half of the week in beach accommodations, a relaxing way to ease into our holiday. Mid-way through the week, you'll head into Bali's most famous town of Ubud. You'll be hosted in luxury accommodations - a tranquil and secluded hillside retreat that sits high up on the edge of the rich green Ayung River valley in Bali's central foothills, in the traditional Balinese hill village of Payangan.
Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of the hotel, the outdoor areas, including a lovely pool, patio and lounges, but the retreat also includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites.
The guest will participate in a Balinese healing and fire ritual, learn Balinese cooking during the cuisine lesson at an organic garden, explore the coast on a boat ride to a secluded beach, and enjoy a guided walk through the ride paddies.
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle and restorative to more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.
Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.
Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space, and some also offer outdoor options for us to use if the weather is agreeable.
In this new itinerary in addition to a daily yoga class, you will also enjoy another activity in the line of mindfulness - either a second ‘asana’ (movement based) yoga class, a meditation class (or meditation walk), or a special Balinese ceremony or blessing. Each day will offer guests a way to enhance their physical health and bodies, but also a stimulating way to enrich their mental and spiritual health.
